Picture a colonial residence furbished with decor from a by gone era and you'll get a slight understanding what Galle Heritage Villa by Jetwing is, But all creature comforts are up to date and the ambiance is addictive, which my wife and i were lucky to have to our own.

When we walked in to the Galle Heritage Villa the immediate feeling i got was of home. Like i could just sit on the sofa and have a cup of tea whilst watching the street goers walk by. This feeling is very hard to find in other hotels. Most of the ambiance comes from the fact that the hotel is... More

Picked this place from Tripadvisor. Lives up to the photos. Small place with just 3 or 4 rooms. Quiet and comfortable and in the middle of the old Galle Fort area. All attractions are withing walking distance. There is no room service and you get only breakfast, which is nice and generous but limited to just one choice - Sri... More

It was a great experience staying here, such a refreshing change from larger impersonal hotels. It is a large house with just four rooms and most of the time we didn't even see anyone else apart from the very conscientious and friendly staff, so felt very special and spoilt. Located in Galle fort which is a fascinating place itself. Well... More
